Amazing !!!

  • 5 of 5

Craig (& all of the Johnson family) -

Thank you so much for an amazing week !!!! We had a wonderful time !

Location = perfect (sand beach, swimming, kayaking, fishing , private, quiet , close to anything you want)

House = perfect (immaculate, organized, comfortable , spacious , loaded with anything you need )

Host = perfect ( Craig was so accommodating and there for us whenever we asked - from basically teaching us how to put our fishing pole together to bringing down more paddles for the kayak )

Our crew ( including 3 young kids and 1 dog ) had such a memorable week !!!! The beach really was unbelievable - it's rare to have a private sandy beach on this lake !! Our kids spent the majority of each day on the beach and in the water ( with our dog who loved the beach and swimming ). Grilling dinner , sunsets at the beach , fire pit s'mores , and great local restaurants and shops! Awesome house that feels like a cottage while still having the " perks " we love like wifi , Bose surround speakers , comfortable beds , top of the line linens . Thanks again to The Johnson family for having us - we can't wait to come back next summer !

Very neat, clean, and well appointed

  • 5 of 5

Great beach down the hill from our cottage, well equipped if you want to go paddling, a bit noisy on the weekends with all the boats flying by, the Johnsons were there if you needed help or have questions about the area. Very convenient to town.

Excellent Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our lab Wella had a wonderful August week, also no rain!

We have been using VRBO for many years and found the Cottage on Winnipesaukee to be the best equipped along with recently updated furnishings. Having the cordial Johnson family on the premise to answer questions and provide advice is most beneficial.

Hope to return next year,

Dick Martin

Peaceful lakeside retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed yet another wonderful visit on Paugus Bay at the Johnson Cottage. Mother Nature brought Fall weather a little early, but we hardly noticed with the all the amenities provided. Thank you for another week of family memories we will never forget.

Great cottage for vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cottage. It was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen has everything you need and the appliances are up to date and work great. Linens were provided and of a high end quality. The property is very well maintained and the private beach was awesome! The kids enjoyed swimming and jumping off the rocks. The sunsets were not to be missed from the beach. It is in a great location and close to everything yet very private and secluded. The owner Craig and his family are on-site and available if anything is needed. They were warm and welcoming and gave us lots of information on the area and ideas of things to do. We would definitely stay here again and we highly recommend it!

Another perfect week!

  • 5 of 5

We were back for our second summer! The kids absolutely love the beach, it has diving rocks and a gentle wade in is good for even young kids. Craig provides kayaks and other water gear, so paddled up and down the bay. There are loons in the cove across the water and you can hear them at night. The cabin is perfect for us and we generally cooked our breakfast and lunch there. Craig is very friendly and always ready with good advice on the area.

The Cottage is centrally located to everything. The Seacoast is less than an 11/2 hours away and the mountains are in our backyard. Great restaurants are all around and grocery shopping is a mile away with two supermarkets and now a super Walmart. TJ Maxx is a mile away too as well as Lowes. Great location!
